Ep. 85 Are You The Bully? Level 2 90 Min Yoga Class

by Elsie on November 15, 2010

recognize your worth

I’m finally getting around to posting the shownotes for this puppy online.

I’ve totally fallen behind on working for myself! I’ve been doing great working for other peeps with workshops and programs and privates, but alas, my poor little site has suffered.

Going back a teeny little bit on this episode that I published on October 17 and it was all about bullying.

Who Is The Bully?

I’ve been doing a lot of meditation on worthlessness or the feeling of being unworthy.

Often times this feeling arises from the way the world speaks to us, perhaps in the form of bullies around us, family members, peers, bosses, etc. but what has really become clear is that it’s not the world that is the root of this feeling, but ourselves.

The biggest bullies that we have in our world are not outside of ourselves but within ourselves.

In this class I went back to one of my favorite books, Christina Sell’s Yoga from the Inside Out, as she speaks of this bullying within the book so very clearly. She inspired me to teach this class to get you to look at yourself honestly and recognize the bully within. See it and transform it.

Recognize how worthy and beautiful you are. Stop the bullying.

I know that I have been a bully to myself. I also know how that personal bully can break the heart much faster the outside ones.

Are you a bully to yourself?

Practice along with us. Give yourself the time to rediscover your worth.

You won’t regret it!

I would LOVE to hear your experiences doing this class.

I really appreciated this class. The self-affirmation messages are beautifully threaded throughout the poses. And your teaching is so sincere and loving.

Just what I needed today. Thank you so much for your gift of these classes online. I’m blissed out.

I loved the prep into trikonasana; I think that may have been the most *in* the pose I’ve ever felt! Thank you.
